Supporting Swindon’s economy
Swindon’s convenient location, skilled workforce and affordable property are just a few of the reasons why some of the biggest brands like National Trust, Intel, MANN and Nationwide – have made Swindon their home. It continues to be one of the top 5 fastest growing economies in the country, with a burgeoning SME community, making Swindon a constantly vibrant place to do business.
Forward Swindon offers a business Investment service to help companies move or expand in
Swindon. We provide all the information and support you need. We help overcome any barriers such
as arranging licensing, solving transport and infrastructure issues, and organising meetings with
council departments or useful support services and suppliers.
If you are newly relocating to Swindon, we can help establish and promote your business in the
community, for example, introducing your company to local media, supporting your growth plans,
highlighting apprenticeship opportunities, and connecting you with the local business network.
We are currently reviewing the focus of our inward investment work, to align with the future requirements of the town centre delivery plan, referred to within the Built Environment section. Please contact Paul Holmes, Director of Investment at Forward Swindon for more information.
